Harmon Brown’s Point ESB


Brewed by Harmon Brewery & Restaurant
Tacoma, Washington USA
Style: Premium Bitter/ESB | Ratings: 43 | Alcohol: 5.4%
Another of the original flagship brews. This is an Americanized version of an English Style Ale. The family of "bitter" ales consists of Ordinary Bitter, Best Bitter and Extra Special Bitter, ESB, is Amber in color, with a medium body and fruity aroma. An easy drinking "session" beer, though a tad big at 5.4% ABV for a long session! The Brown’s Point ESB uses a hop oil essence of Fuggles - an English style hop - to provide the dry hop aroma. Fuggles is the only hop used to brew this beer; most certainly an in-house favorite. 5.4% ABV and 40 IBUs.
